This problem has made me stop playing army ops for months. Once I installed a router for my LAN (before that, I used to have a normal ADSL modem), the pings in this game are... beyond imagination high. I can get around 80.000 ping before I have to exit the game cause I cant even type. Someone told me about a speed bug, whats this? I couldnt ask him, cause I couldnt type then. Perhaps I need to open a port in my router? Anyone had this problem before? I miss the game a lot..

hi i will post some needfull things: router: look in your router for portforwardings and eny settings with delay..... its finaly your router that block some pings from the game,set it correctly or TURN IT OFF! every day people with ANY routerproblems:( ,but here some infos: port forwarding: open this defaults ports::deal: UDP - 1716, 1717, 1718, 8777, 27900 TCP - 20045, 14200 UDP ports 1716 for the game, 1717 for the gamequery, 1718 for master server query, 8777 for standard UT query, 27900 for GameSpy and TCP ports 20045 for Auth server and 14200 for Andromeda. (Andromeda is down) if you have a high/bad ping..stop ALL services that running on your background were need your cpu & connectionspeed! or make a RECONNECT or try another server. speed bug? never heard of it. some good infos for ya?
I will try the portforwarding, that sounds like the solution. Thanks a lot.
